I'm so glad to see some of these amazing teachings translated into audiobooks. With all of the names and lineage, many times It can become a big word soup. Hearing the pronunciations and having the luxury of being able to drive and listen to teachings at the same time is simply amazing. Learning about the teachers that brought these teachings to us is the first step in understanding how to tame our mind. What a wonderful book and a wonderful teacher! Thank you!

I really enjoyed this book. Roger Clark's voice was clear and never distracted me from the content. The stories are inspiring and illustrate the life and teachings of a very wise Tibetan monk, Patrul Rinpoche.
I must admit that there was one little part of the book that bothered me a bit. It is from the section Do Kyentse's Hospitality. In this story, Patrul accepts a food offering slaughtered on his behalf. I won't go into detail about how he rationalizes this decision, but I was disappointed that my new hero would do this because to my mind, he was practically a deity. I got to thinking about it and came to the conclusion that I shouldn't even expect a saint like Patrul to be perfect. He was a human being after all. Even the great ones are bound to misstep from time to time, they just err much less frequently than the rest of us.
This book is a favorite of mine and is brimming with stories of Patrul helping others and living with tremendous compassion, humility and wisdom.
